"Since I'm a beginner, never doing any watercolor painting before, your detailed instruction is very helpful." Diane B.
"What a fun class! Alexandra presents information so beautifully, by explaining and demonstrating at a pace that is easy to follow. The entire production (camera work) is excellent. I learned a lot from the class and had fun getting out and looking for leaves (I found over 20 in my own yard! I had not truly noticed that before!) I look forward to watching more classes that she offers and learning more from her wherever I can find her!" G.G.
